{Sun} Sweets: Kimono Birthday Card

Sunday, April 09, 2017

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

A quick card for a friend...clean and layered with a little distressing...

I used Cherry Blossoms Digital Kit and printed out papers and sentiment. I distressed the edges of the papers with an Edge Distresser (CTMH) and layered them on card.
I stamped kimono (Club Scrap Cherry Blossoms Art Nouveau unmounted stamps) on white cardstock and cut it out.
I outlined kimono and colored the cherry blossoms with with alcohol-based markers.
I watercolored the kimono in purple and let it dry.
I adhered the kimono on card and added the sentiment (outlined with Copic marker).
